Got a question on rule clarification, comments on rule enforcements or some memorable NHL stories? Kerry wants to answer your emails at cmonref@tsn. Dale Davis Jersey .ca! Hey Kerry, I was at the Jets-Oilers game on Tuesday night and noticed quite a bit of jersey tucking - most notably Bryan Little and Tobias Enstrom. No penalties were called and as far as I know, no warnings were given. (there might have been?) any thoughts or insight on to how this will be called during the season? Thanks,Will BrigantiEdmonton Will: The "jersey tucking" mandate is designed to comply with Rule 9—Equipment and more specifically 9.5—Protective Equipment: "All protective equipment, except gloves, headgear, and goaltenders leg guards must be worn under the uniform. Should it be brought to the attention of the Referee that a player is wearing, for example, an elbow pad that is not covered by his jersey, he shall instruct the player to cover up the pad and a second violation by the same player would result in a minor penalty being assessed." When a player tucks his jersey into the top of his pants some portion of the protective padding becomes exposed (worn outside the uniform) in violation of this rule. From a safety perspective the gap created by a tucked jersey exposes a portion of the players upper body and can act as a catchall for flying pucks and sticks to the point of causing an unnecessary injury. Aesthetically, it also violates rule 9.1 which provides that all players of each team shall be dressed uniformly with approved design and color of their helmets, sweaters, short pants, stockings and skates. The fact of the matter (beyond uniformity) is it just doesnt play well in the building or on TV. This also translates to the players hockey pants that are ripped, torn, cut or altered (open zippers inside thigh) for comfort or otherwise that could expose a bare leg or sock in the thigh area. I witnessed Walt Tkaczuk and other players that had huge thighs sometimes utilize zippers in the inside of their pants that would be half-zipped from the bottom for comfort. I thought at the time it made them vulnerable in this area but also as the pant continued to wear and curl just how poorly it looked aesthetically. Whenever a rule like this was handed to us for enforcement I considered it a "babysitting" assignment for me and my colleagues. This ranged from telling players how they could dress, to color of tape and size of the knob on the end of a goalies stick to water bottles being placed back into the sleeve on top of the net. As insignificant as they seem these rules still must be enforced. There were far too many times to count that I had to advise a player to cover his elbow pad with his jersey. Super heavyweight Dave Brown (and super guy) used a very tight jersey sleeve from the top of his elbow down to a shortened cuff. This prevented much grab-hold by his opponents but also resulted in the lower part of his elbow pad to become exposed. Every time I asked Brownie to cover his elbow pad he complied without a fuss; albeit took some work to get it stretched for proper coverage. The Officials are instructed to enforce the "sweater tuck" when they notice it as follows: If a player comes onto the ice tucked in, he is warned and must comply (fix it immediately). Should it occur to the same player in that game there is no further warning and a minor penalty for delay of game results; following the assessment of the minor penalty should he return to the ice without making the necessary change he would be assessed a misconduct penalty; should this happen a third time, the player shall be assessed a game misconduct penalty (rule 9.5). It is also important for us to know that the Referees were reminded that sometimes the sweater might become tucked just through normal movement in the action of a game. This is not a violation. If however, it were to become the norm with the same player (for example one who comes onto the ice un-tucked but during the course of play always seems to end up with his sweater tucked) the Referees are to notify the League office. Hockey Ops personnel would then follow-up with the team equipment manager to ensure that the jersey is not too short for the player and perhaps needs to be altered. This may have been what took place with Bryan Little and Tobias Enstrom in the game you observed Will. If by chance the League office was unaware of these players sweaters frequently getting tucked your question here just might have raised a red-flag! Great job of "babysitting" Will. Travis Best Jersey . -- Canadian Erik Bedard pitched into the fifth inning in his bid to win a spot in Tampa Bays rotation, helping the Rays beat the Toronto Blue Jays 6-3 on Saturday. Fred Jones Jersey . She still remembers the massive roar of the home crowd when the Canadians walked out on the pitch before 47,784 fans at Commonwealth Stadium in 2002. Lang expects a similar reception for the Canadian team as the host nation at this years tournament, which begins Tuesday. https://www.cheappacers.com/ . The deals were announced on Friday. Beckham will receive $4.175 million in base salary, while De Aza will receive $4.25 million. Beckham hit .267 with five home runs and 24 RBIs over 103 games last season, his fifth with the White Sox.(SportsNetwork.com) - The Cleveland Cavaliers are rolling and will try to extend their season-best winning streak Monday night when they visit the Barclays Center to face the Brooklyn Nets. LeBron James and company have won six in a row, including two straight on the road. After a victory in Madison Square Garden over the New York Knicks on Thursday night, the Cavs knocked off the Toronto Raptors, 105-91, at Air Canada Centre on Friday. James had 24 points, 13 assists and seven rebounds in the victory over the best team in the Eastern Conference. His 13 assists were a season-high. He showcased his game in front of NBA legends Charles Barkley, Magic Johnson and Dikembe Mutombo who were among those at Air Canada Centre to honor Nelson Mandela on the one-year anniversary of the former South African president and Nobel Peace Prize winners death. The celebration was put together by Raptors president and general manager Masai Ujiri. To have legends here and see Charles and Magic in the crowd was spectacular, said James. For me I just try and do whatever it takes to win and being able to get my teammates involved, assists to me mean more than anything. Kyrie Irving, who scored 37 in the win over the Knicks, scored 15 in this one, including the bulk of Clevelands points in a key third-quarter run after Toronto had gone ahead for the first time. Tristan Thompson added 21 points and 14 rebounds off the bench for the Cavs and Kevin Love scored 15 with 13 boards. The Cavaliers shot 45 percent from long range and hannded out 28 assists on 41 made field goals. Dudley Bradley Jersey. Cleveland returns to Quicken Loans Arena on Tuesday for a rematch against the Raptors. King James is expected to play this game in front of fellow royalty. Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton are scheduled to take in the game from the Barclays Center. The Nets had a two-game winning streak snapped very abruptly on Friday night in a 98-75 home loss to the red-hot Atlanta Hawks. Atlanta ambushed Brooklyn in the second quarter, winning that period, 36-13. The Hawks turned their two-point deficit after one into a double-digit lead with a 21-4 run over the first eight minutes of the quarter thanks to poor Nets shooting. Brooklyns second field goal did not come until there was 3:47 remaining before halftime. Brook Lopez paced Brooklyn with 20 points and seven boards as the Nets have dropped two of their last three at the Barclays Center. Joe Johnson totaled 12 points with six rebounds and four assists for Brooklyn in his 1,000th NBA game. The opponent had the hot hand and we couldnt do anything about it, Johnson said. Atlanta only shot 43.2 percent and 38.2 percent from 3-point range, but the Nets were just dreadful offensively. Brooklyn shot 37.5 percent from the field and 3-for-18 from beyond the arc. These two teams split four meetings last season, although the Nets are 6-2 in their last eight versus the Cavs. The Nets have won five straight in this series as the host and the Cavaliers have never won in Brooklyn in four attempts.
